The Hanoi Health Department has just issued temporary guidance on the implementation of health control measures for people arriving from other localities.

Those who arrive and/or return to the city will not be required to show SARS-CoV-2 test results.

Testing is not mandatory, except for those coming from pandemic-hit areas at level 4 or medical isolation areas and suspected cases or cases from pandemic areas at level 3.

Those who have been fully vaccinated or completely recovered from COVID-19 within six months by the time they return to Hanoi from the extremely high-risk or quarantine areas (level 4), will self-monitor their health at home for seven days and get tested once by RT-PCR method on the first day in Hanoi.

Those who have received just one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine will self-quarantine at home for seven days, continue to self-monitor their health at home for the next seven days, follow the 5K measures and take two tests by RT-PCR method on the first and seventh days since arrival in the city.

Those who are not yet vaccinated have to self-quarantine at home for 14 days from the date of arrival in Hanoi, continue to self-monitor their health for the next 14 days, and be tested for SARS-CoV-2 by RT-PCR method three times on the 1st, 7th and 14th days of arrival in Hanoi.

 

Fully vaccinated people who return to Hanoi from level-3 areas have to self-monitor at home for seven days, while for unvaccinated the duration is 14 days.

These returnees are not required to be tested for the virus.

Medical self-quarantine will not be imposed on those returning from pandemic-hit areas at levels 2 and 1.

All people arriving in Hanoi have to make medical declarations and inform the local authorities.

They have to immediately notify local health authorities if they have symptoms of cough, fever, sore throat, loss or decrease in smell and taste.

In addition, people passing through the city are not required to be tested but must follow the 5K measures and not stop in the city except for force majeure cases.
